Guardian Vets – Overnight Assistance

Here at Blum we LOVE taking care of your furry family members, but we know it can be tough when we are not open. We understand your pet’s emergencies do not always occur during our regular business hours.

That is why we have partnered with an awesome new company, Guardian Vets, to help provide after-hours assistance to owners when we are not available.

If you have a question or a non-emergent issue, you can call our regular phone number at (773) 327-4446, and you can speak with a licensed veterinary professional. These professionals can help you assess if you need to bring your pet to an emergency vet or if they can wait until the following day for an appointment.

Every call that Guardian Vets answers from our clients, we receive a detailed report about their recommendations. If there are actions required such as scheduling an appointment or refilling a medication, we will definitely follow up with the owners the next business day. This is all so our clients can feel comfortable that their pet’s health and safety is taken of no matter what time of day it is!
